You think your weather is bad?

Posted by   + Show Post

This is what I woke up to:

-30 C (-22 F) all on it's own, but thanks to that super duper wind it is -42 C (-44 F). At almost noon it has warmed up to a balmy -27 C, still -38 C with the wind chill.

Although I very much doubt it, can anyone out there beat this?

My children are the source of my strength, frustration, happiness, insanity, sanity, irritability.  They are the definition of unconditional love.

Quoting D.O.E.:

Very Very Cold Outside

Cold-Winter-Day 2

Make sure you're completely covered if heading outside. Southern Saskatchewan is feeling the brunt of winter.

Wind chill warnings went out early Sunday morning for a number of areas including, Moose Jaw, Regina, Saskatoon, Prince Albert, North Battleford, and Humboldt.

For now, temperatures have plummeted to about -40 with the windchill. By mid-week, the province should get back to normal temperatures for this time of year.


Wind chill warning issued by Environment Canada for
Moose Jaw - Pense - Central Butte - Craik

Extreme wind chills

A cold Arctic airmass pushing into Southern Saskatchewan with winds in the 20 to 30 km/h range will combine to produce extreme wind chills in the minus 40 to minus 43 range over the warning area. Extreme wind chills are expected again in Southeastern Saskatchewan Sunday night and  into Monday morning.

At these extreme wind chill values frostbite on exposed skin may occur in less than 10 minutes.




yeppers, i am right there with ya. getting itchy for spring. we have had one hell of a winter, last year we had barley any snow, and wore hoodies all winter, not even jackets. 

this sucks. this is an old school kind of winter.

as usual we are right smack dag in the thick of the shitty weather, lol

Holy crap!   That's beyond anything I could live with--it's about 35 here today and I'm freakin' freezing.  I keep looking at the weather in Sanibel, Florida, where we vacation, and it's been like 82 and sunny for a couple weeks now.  I want to be there so bad!
